We're splitting hairs now. I think we agree that both drivers should be in the HOF



Still pretty obvious by your posts that you do think favoritism in some form may exist, or you wouldn't have mentioned it twice.  I think the process eliminates that.

   I went there and read it. I see what you're saying, but who submitted it without reading the instructions? To be fair, the instructions seem a bit overdone. It's almost like a test to see how close you can follow the instructions. Do they really send it back if it's done wrong, or do they just simply set it aside?



In business I have had instances where paperwork alone can overrun a task. If the process states one page, and they'll accept two, then why wouldn't 3,4,5, also be acceptable? Some things need thorough instructions and items that need to be adhered to, or it becomes a nightmare to control.

Right. I would not be surprised if some favoritism may exist. No big deal... I'm not suggesting its rigged or that TMac doesn't deserve to be in. You may be right about election process

Why are we quibbling about this? They both deserve to be in, right?

Based on the eligibility requirements, and the backgrounds of the 72 member election committee, no, I don't think his having raced at Knoxville influenced a thing. Only three drivers per year can be inducted, and of those nominated, to be inducted a driver must recieve votes on 25% of the 72 voter panel ballots in order to be inducted. As an active driver McCarl was actually eligible in 2015 (the year after turning age 50, born in 1964).  So, in his third year of eligibility, McCarl makes it in. Lance Dewease became eligible in 2016, the year after he turned 50 (born in 1965).  So, should Dewease be inducted in 2018, he would match the swiftness that McCarl enjoyed. Third year of eligibility. I would certainly think that Dewease will be inducted next year. Based on his career, I too would be disapointed if he isn't. I can see where a select few would make it in during their first year of eligibility, and even their second year. So that alone could get in the way of some being nominated getting in during a certain time frame. So it can all depend on who becomes eligible and when. Stevie Smith Jr will be eligible for the first time, next year I believe. If he makes it in during his first year, that will leave just two driving spots open. Who else has just turne 50 his year? Or has been retired 5 years?



Yep, he'll be in soon enough. No big deal. Racing season is over in most of the country so we need something to talk about.
